This Monastery is very close to the city of Leh and we went early morning to catch the 6am prayer. The rituals and rhythms are not to be missed. We tasted salted butter tea at the Monastery langar.

If you go there, try to book a place close to the monastery, get up early and go to the morning puja. It is magical. Also, visit the Buddhist healer who has his little shop right next to the monastery.
